Antibody vs. Viral Tests

Antibodies

    Antibody or Serology tests are blood tests to detect antibodies. Antibodies are what a body produces in response to an antigen (or “invader”). Since there is no vaccine for this virus, antibodies indicate past exposure to the virus.

Viral Test (PCR Test)

    A Viral test is a test for current infection (usually a nasal swab or saliva sample). If you have symptoms, you should have this test, not the antibody test. StatFile offers the Saliva Lab Test For Symptomatic patients. Asymptomatic patients can choose either test.

Rapid vs. Lab Tests

Rapid Test

rapid covid test virginia beach norfolkStat File offers various Rapid “Instant” test, with results available within approximately 10 – 20 minutes.

This includes the Rapid Anti-Body “Instant” Test and the Rapid Point of Care (POC) Nasal Swab Test.

The Rapid Anti-Body shows if you have been exposed to the Covid-19 Virus. It does NOT determine if you have the virus, only that you have been exposed to the Virus.

The Rapid POC Nasal Swab Test does test for the SARS-COV-2 (Covid -19) virus. This test takes approximately 10 – 15 minutes, and has an accuracy rating of approximately 90%. The difference in our Rapid Covid Test, vs. other versions available is the time the virus enters the body until it mutates to be detected. Our test is one of the most accurate and has the shortest duration for detection, generally 2 days. Other test take anywhere from 5 – 14 days after the virus enters the body to be detected.

Lab Test

covid lab test virginia beachStat File offers both Lab Based Antibody test, and Active Live Virus Test.

The Antibody Test only detects if you have been exposed to the Virus, and does not show if you currently have Active Live Virus in your body. We offer two Lab Based Antibody test. The IgA/IgM test detects if you have been exposed generally in only two days after exposure. We also offer the IgM/IgG Antibody test, which is only able to detect exposure after approximately 7 – 10 days.

Our Lab Based “Live Virus” is a Molecular PCR test and is one of the most advanced and accurate test available. This test also uses SALIVA vs. the long nasal probe, so it is much less invasive and is certainly more comfortable. This test has an accuracy of 98%. The Molecular PCR test is the ONLY test acceptable for travel to other states or countries. The turnaround time for this test is generally two business days. NOTE: DUE TO THE RECENT SURGES ACROSS THE COUNTRY WE HAVE ON OCCASION HAD TEST RESULTS DELAYED. STAT FILE HAS NO CONTROL OVER DELAYS WHICH MAY OCCUR. WHILE THESE DELAYS ARE RARE, THEY CAN HAPPEN!

FAQ

Can I get tested for COVID-19 if I am asymptomatic?

Are you returning to campus?, etc?
Peace of mind?

Will my insurance cover the cost?

StatFile is not in network with any insurer. The CARES ACT seems to require that all insurers cover certain COVID-19 related tests, even if they are out of network. We will provide you with a receipt of payment which you can submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement.

Testing times

Lab Based Test, Blood or Saliva – Normal turnaround times, without shipping, or lab delayed due to exceptionally high volume can be as short as 36 hours. Ask the technician when you call about current results times.

Can I change my mind after booking/paying?

With all Covid-19 tests, the sale is final. Once we open the sterile, secure test kit, the test is then considered “in progress”. As such, we cannot cancel the test, thus, all sales are final, no exceptions.

Is my test reported anywhere?

The CDC, FHA, and Virginia Department of Health require, that ALL TEST, BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE, be reported to these authorities.
